Samsung shows off the Galaxy Note II, a new 9.4mm thick superphone with a 5.5" HD Super AMOLED screen that sports a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. Inside this new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean phone is the quad-core Samsung Exynos 1.6GHz processor and a 3100mAh battery, and a 8MP camera with 1080p video recording is also included.
You can expect the phone towards the end of the year, it will ship in Titanium Grey and Marble White color options. A new stylus is also included.
The great news is that the Galaxy Note II will be launching on Jelly Bean -- no laborious waiting for those over-the-air updates for Google's very latest. Software additions are understandably heavily weighted towards the phablet's S Pen advances. The stylus itself now has a rubber nib, which Samsung reckons will offer an experience closer to pen and paper. User can add "Quick Commands" to their stylus gestures, while "Air View" allows you to peruse galleries and folders by floating the stylus just above the screen. Samsung's also added an Easy Clip ability to crop and share from anything beaming out from the Note II's 16:9 screen. Stylus functionality has been gifted to the calendar (S Planner) and the native email app, while the S Pen itself will now notify your phone if it's left behind. The device will launch in Titanium Grey and Marble White, arriving internationally before the end of the year.
